Basic Electrical Engineering Internship Test

Intern has to take Basic Electrical Engineering internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Basic Electrical Engineering topic.

1. What is the voltage measured across a series short?
(A) Infinite
(B) Zero
(C) The value of the source voltage
(D) Null
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: A short is just a wire. The potential difference between two points of a wire is zero hence the voltage measured is equal to zero.

2. In a _________ circuit, the total resistance is greater than the largest resistance in the circuit.
(A) Series
(B) Parallel
(C) Either series or parallel
(D) Neither series nor parallel
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: In series circuits, the total resistance is the sum of all the resistance in the circuit, hence the total is greater than the largest resistance.

3. KVL deals with the conservation of?
(A) Mass
(B) Momentum
(C) Charge
(D) Energy
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: KVL states that the sum of the potential energy and taken with the right sign is equal to zero, hence it is the conservation of energy since energy doesn’t enter or leave the system.

4. Materials which easily allow the passage of electric current are known as ______
(A) Insulators
(B) Conductors
(C) Dielectrics
(D) Semi-conductors
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: Conductors are materials(mostly metals), which freely allow the passage of electrons through it. If electrons can flow freely through a material, it implies that even current can flow freely through that material since current is the rate of flow of electrons.

5. KVL is associated with____________
(A) Mesh analysis
(B) Nodal analysis
(C) Both mesh and nodal
(D) Neither mesh nor nodal
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: KVL employs mesh analysis to find the different mesh currents by finding the IR products in each mesh.
